All day while I'm at work (Om dagen vid mitt arbete)
All the way my Saviour leads me (Hela vägen går Han med mig)
Far away has my sweetheart gone (Tuoll' on mun kultani)
Hide not your face (Herre, fördölj ej ditt ansikte för mig)
I am a guest and pilgrim (Jag är en gäst och pilgrim)
O blesséd land (O sälla land)
Some day the silver cord will break (Han brister snart, min silvertråd)

Herre, fördölj ej ditt ansikte för mig (Tuoll' on mun kultani)
Jag är en gäst och främling (Home, sweet home)
O sälla land ( I look not back)
Om dagen vid mitt arbete (Om dagen vid mitt arbete)

Fader vår
Hela vägen går Han med mig
Jag är främling
Kämpar för vår konung
Land, du välsignade
Mitt hem
När omkring mig världen larmar
Tack min Gud för vad som varit
Vid besök i barndomshemmet

The author Lina Sandell has been referred to as the "Fanny Crosby of Sweden". The hymns of Fanny Crosby were translated into Swedish and many other languages. J. A. Hultman was one of the composers, who set her "Take the world, but give me Jesus" to music.

Three of Lina Sandell’s hymns employ the secular melodies “Home, sweet home” (England), “Tuoll' on mun kultani” (Finland) and “Om dagen vid mitt arbete” (Sweden). The American hymn “I look not back” by Annie Johnson Flint and Sandell’s hymn “O sälla land” have the same melody, composed by Oscar Ahnfelt

E. Einar Kron published his translations of Nils Frykman, Carl Olof Rosenius, Lina Sandell and August Storm in the 1982 book "Hymns and Poems of Sweden".

Einar Ekberg (1905 – 1961) was a Swedish gospel singer, who was also popular with Swedish-American audiences. He first toured the United States in 1924 and immigrated there in 1948. He nonetheless continued performing in both Sweden and America for the rest of his life. Among his many recordings were those released in the United States on the Columbia and Harmony labels. He recorded "Hade som duvan jag vingar", but the version on this page is by Oscar Bergström.

Sohlmans musiklexikon (Sohlman’s musical dictionary) stated that "Einar Ekberg's voice was warm and sonorous and his singing characterized by deep musicality, great technical skills and congenial text interpretation. He had the distinct ability to highlight and ennoble even the simple, artless songs typical of the evangelical Christian genre." The Swedish journalist and historian Uno "Myggan" Ericson described Ekberg as "sacred music’s most distinguished representative, who knew how to give even the most banal lyrics and melody deeper content."
